    Pursuant to the provisions of article 41 of the Act on relief for atomic bomb survivors, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Fountain ' efforts result in Nagasaki are realized in this way. In a serene space freed from the hustle and bustle of the city there are time constraints, similar to the National Gallery of art and holocoastmemorial. The design of Akira Kuryu were involved including equality of Fengxiang. Heart-wrenching on the number of survivors is growing every day.
